MAMMA’S ANGELS TIP: Diego (who will welcome you at this villa): “Have a walk in the outdoor fishmarket in Ortigia and enjoy the greatest panino ever to Borderi”.

Closest Market: 0,3 km - Closest restaurant: 0,3 km - Closest Piazza (or center): 0,3 km
Fontane Bianche (photo) is renowned for its fine and white sandy beach.
It is at around 3 km’s away from Syracuse, the wonderful and powerful town of the past (V b.C.). Here we can admire many impressive monuments of the past as, for instance, the Greek theatre, the Orecchio di Dionisio, the temple of Athena, whose columns, presently, are incorporated inside the Duomo, as aisles and the archaeological museum Paolo Orsi, the biggest and among the most important in the world.
Worth a visit also the museum of Papyrus.
Ortigia (photo) is the downtown of Syracuse and is a little island linked to the mainland through two bridges. It’s a unique place, nice and full of life and with a great outdoor market.
Piazza Duomo is the hearth of Ortigia but don’t forget to visit the fonte Aretusa (where still now Papyrus grows), and to have a walk along the promenade.
15 km’s away here it is the capital of Baroque style in the world: Noto.
Just some kilometer from Noto, on top of a hill, here it is the amazing remains of the ancient Noto (Noto Antica), destroyed by the earthquake of 1693 and from where you can also access the Paradiso canyon.
Close by Noto here it is Vendicari, a sort of paradise for birds, birdwatchers, sea lovers, naturalists, archaeologists …
Another great naturalistic site is Cavagrande del Cassibile (10 km’s), a canyon with lakes, gorges and many ancient settlements carved on the rock.
Do you want to see 5.000 tombs carved on the rock, an underground river and a lush forest: welcome to Pantalica (photo, Unesco's), 30 km's away.
Another great place worth a visit is Akray, a Greek site, in Palazzolo Acreide at almost 20 kms away.
Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe (3.300 sqm) is 60 km’s away.
I suggest you to enjoy Mamma's Etna tour, the most requested in Sicily.
Just a last tip: have a pizza or a fish meal in Ortigia.
And don’t forget to taste the granita for breakfast!
